Activity 32 Airports and airlines are commercial organisations aiming to make a profit. Airlines make a profit through carrying passengers, whereas airports make a profit by charging airlines to land on the runways. These are known as landing charges. At Heathrow the major airlines are the established ‘full service’ carriers such as British Airways. At other UK airports the users include the low cost airlines such as Ryanair and easyJet. Traditionally, major airlines such as British Airways and Air France were known as ‘flag carriers’ and may have been publicly owned. Today these airlines are owned by private sector organisations. All major airlines such as British Airways and Ryanair operate a scheduled service. On popular short haul routes to destinations such as Paris and Barcelona, the prices charged by traditional airlines may be similar to those of the low cost carriers. Low cost airlines do not fly on long haul flights to the USA and other destinations outside of Europe. Low cost carriers have also had an impact on the operations of other travel and tourism organisations. More travellers are now able and prepared to book their flight directly with the carrier rather than using travel agents. Furthermore, airlines have been responsible for self- packagingwhich is where the traveller books their own flights, accommodation and other transport, rather than buying a traditional package holiday. Fill in the missing words in the passage by dragging the words shown below to the spaces: long haul flag carriers full service landing charges self-packaging scheduled short haul low cost commercial
